Gondola Ride at the Venetian (Better Inside or Outside?)

A gondola ride at The Venetian is one of the most romantic experiences you can enjoy in Las Vegas.

Imagine a gondolier serenading you as you drift past luxury shops and restaurants — it’s a breathtaking adventure! But which one offers the better experience, an indoor gondola ride or an outdoor one?

It’s the perfect way to get a feel for the city, and it’s an experience you won’t soon forget. Each gondola seats four people, but you can book a private gondola for yourself.

Experiencing the Gondola Ride in Las Vegas

Indoors, the canal runs down the center of the Grand Canal Shoppes. In other words, you’re in the middle of a shopping mall with stores on either side.

Gondola Ride Inside the Venetian

The best part about an indoor gondola ride is that it feels more relaxed and slower. The ride is perfect for couples or groups of friends looking to add a bit of romance or fun to their day.

Your other option is to take a gondola ride on the separate canal located outside of The Venetian next to Las Vegas Blvd.

Gondola Ride Outside the Venetian

This setup gives you an entirely different experience than the indoor canal, as you are right on the Strip and can see many of the nearby resorts and feel the Las Vegas vibe.

The best time to take an outdoor gondola ride is at night, anytime before 11 pm (Midnight on Fridays and Saturdays), when the casino lights shine bright.
